A decade ago, "The Bonfire of the Vanities" defined an era -- and established Tom Wolfe as our prime fictional chronicler of America at its most outrageous and alive. His writing has appeared in New York magazine, Esquire and Harpers among other prominent publications. The author of "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test", "The Right Stuff" and "In Our Time", Wolfe's new novel is "A Man in Full".

"...a masterpiece... From the author of Bonfire we expect the brilliant jokes, the dead-on dialog, the dazzling scene-setting that mark every page of his new novel. But now we get something more. Is it sympathy? Generosity? I'm not sure what to call it. But it is the difference between seeing the world in slices and seeing it in full." -The Wall Street Journal
